17. Alafair Wright was born on 10 Jan 1768 in Maryland. She died after 1854 in Bedford County, TN.

Sixth Generation

32. Michael Drollinger was born about 1740 in PA (?). He died after 1804 in Rockingham Cty NC (?). He is mentioned in the 1803 Orange county multiple grantor deeds as an heir of Adam. So I place him as a son of Adam mainly for this reason.

Michael Trolenger (Trollener, Trollender) son of Adam Drollinger 1708

Source: Public land grant records of Anson county, NC.; Census records of Rockingham County, Salisbury District, NC, 1790 & 1800;

Old records show a variety of ways in which Michael Trolenger spelled his name, as shown in parenthesis. This great variation probably was due to his broken German accent or lack of knowledge of the English language, at the time when these records were prepared by the Colonial officials of his neighborhood. the records of Guilford County, North
Carolina, show that a grant of 200 acres of land on the waters of Jacobs Creek was issued to him 14 October 1783, His application was entered for this land 17 May 1779 (Grant #783, Bk. 34, P. 61). The U. S. Census Records of Rockingham County, Salisbury District, North Carolina, for 1800, show Michael Trolenger, age 45 and up, as the head of a family in
which were: 1 female, 45 and up (evidently his wife; 2 males, aged 16 and 26; 1 male, under 10; 3 females, aged 16 to 26; 1 female, under 10. Old census records of Rockingham County for 1790 show Michael Trollender as the head of a family in which there were ___ males and ___ females. Near him in the 1800 records are Samuel Trolinger, aged 26 to 45, and his wife, aged 16 to 26, with one child under 10; and Adam Trolinger, aged 26 to 45 and his wife, 26 to 45, with four children, all under 10. Samuel and Adam are next to each other on the list. Their location on the records and the presence of the name "Adam" seems to link thesre families to Adam Trolinger, the emigrant. Michael's children are believed to be Adam, Samuel, Thomas, and others shown above.

33. Unknown was born UNKNOWN. She died UNKNOWN.

Seventh Generation

64. Adam Drollinger was born on 4 Apr 1708 in Ellmendingen, Baden, Germany. He died in 1803 in Guilford Cty NC. Most sources say Adam was in Haw River as early as 1745. There are three sources that place Adam in Pennsylvania as late as 1750. Published archives of PA, 3rd series volume XXIV page 122 Warrantees of Land, Adam Drollinger 100 acres 11 March 1746; page 170 Throllinger Adam 50 acres 23 April 1746. Bucks County Pennsylvania court records, 12 April 1750 Oath of Allegiance Adam Drollinger. This oath is referred to as a Quaker Baptism possibly as it is mentioned in Guisuippi's Quaker Records.
Some thing that is missed is the fact that Adam's father, Hans Michael, also came over to the new world. He is listed in "Auswanderungen aus Baden und dem Breisgau" Konrad Theiss Verlag, Stuttgart and Aalen 1980 by Werner Hacker. Hacker #1710 Hans Michael Drollinger of Ellmendingen, with wife and children, wants to go to his son, Adam, in Pennsylvania, who emigrated 1738 and has asked to join him; Hans Michael was released in 1740 with 8 other parties, 47 persons, but stayed for a while to sell his property. He leaves for Pennsylvania with his wife and 1 son 1743. Ship Rosanna, James Reason, Master, from Rotterdam 26 Sep 1743... Hance Michel Droliner... Gabriel Drollinger.
Adam's age on arrival in Philadelphia 20 September 1738 is given as 30 which is consistant with his birth record in the Ellmendingen Church Books. The dates on the monument in the Trollinger Cemetery in Haw River are more consistant with Hans Michael. The land grant to Adam, entered 13 May 1778, issued 13 March 1780, entry number 11 and his listing on tax lists 1780 - 81 make his death in 1776 unlikely. I place it in 1803 because of the multiple grantor deeds listing his heirs.

Oct. 31. The road was miserable, but we made 26 miles, crossed the Haw River,
and camped near Drollinger’s. He was not at home when we arrived but returned
late, somewhat intoxicated. He made a great stir when he saw that a fire had been built on his land, but when he learned who we were he excused himself, he was ashamed that he had drunk so much, we should not think ill of him, we were
heartily welcome, he was a poor fellow who could not help himself, but he was at
our service. He soon went to his house, and we were well content. We nearly had a serious misfortune today, for fire was discovered in the beds in the Sisters’ tent.
Fortunately it was found in time and extinguished. As the Brethren slept by the fire at night a burning log rolled toward them, but they were waked in time.

Nov. 1. Drollinger attended our morning prayers, and gave our drivers some hay,
and went with us to a road leading to a mill. He was much ashamed of last night, and wished that we could spend the day with him so that he might kill a cow, and share it with us as a peace offering. We felt sorry for the poor man, for he seems to love the Brethren, and the Saviour will not let his willingness to serve us go unrewarded. After dinner Br. Sauter rode ahead to the Wachau; Br. Christian Henrich gave him a letter to the Brethren there announcing our approach. We had a fairly good night, but toward day the wolves waked us with their not particularly agreeable howling. Our Graff joined in the concert, but when the wolves heard the new voice they suddenly stopped.

"Emigrants from Baden and Wuertemburg in the eighteenth century" volume I Baden Durlach by Brigette Burkette also mentions Hans Michael. If the misleading gravestone in Trollinger Cemetery Haw River has any truth to it then he died at age 95.
